I make no secret of my love for the Palm Springs style – those hazy summer images, the straight clean lines of the building and the bright contrasting colours. So this book, which has just come out this month (perfect timing for those of us in London freezing our little cotton socks off), is a must have. Perfect for daydreaming and for future inspiration.
